Skateboard Lamp

This is just kind of an unfinished prototype, but I figured I’d put it up and see if anyone had any suggestions. Right now it’s a “floor lamp”, but I’m thinking it might get bigger and evolve into a chandelier.

A long time ago a friend of mine made fun of me for having a skateboard, because I didn’t use it that much (not that coordinated). He’d come over and it’d just be sitting there. Eventually, it turned into a running gag. He’d ask how the skateboarding was coming…. and then he went all the way and said I should just make a lamp out of it. So, I’m stealing his idea.

Reptile clock

I made this clock for a show in Portland. It’s at the Pony Club (the same place that showed my drawings earlier this year). Anyway, the show is called 11:11 and it’s all timepieces, and it will be up during March.

Crisis Case

A ‘crisis case’ is an event in which a person has a quasi-perceptual experience of someone at a distance at the time of that person’s death or other crisis.

This is another in the series of prints I’ve been working on. It’s transparent base printed on 5 different layers.

Untitled (X-Ray)

Thse are two states of the same image. It is made up of three layers of screen printing on recycled jewel cases. The first picture was taken in the dark with the phosphorescent layer showing through. The second in the light. I’m not sure why I decided to use the ugliest picture I could find of myself, but there you have it.

Ghost Faces

This is another in the series I’ve been working on. It was transparent base, screenprinted on multiple layers of old jewel cases. It’s approximately 17 x 14 inches.

Ever since I was told that the first study was reminiscent of a daguerreotype, I’ve been trying to come as close to a combination of silver film negatives and holograms as I can.

Record Portrait

This is a portrait of my father, that I made with one of his old records and a drill. Yet another object that’s difficult to document. I’ll never learn.

Clear Self Portrait

This is the final piece created from my previous silk screen studies. It’s a grid of 12 wide by 21 high by 6 squares deep.

It still has a few rough edges that need to be worked out. But mainly it’s finished.

Transparent Self Portrait, Study #2

eric

eye_study_01.jpg

This is the first true scale study for a larger piece I am working on. This part is about 24 inches by 20 inches.

Like the other study, it is silk screen on mulitple layers of jewel cases, but it is twice the size. I’ve also started playing with leaving some of the areas black and others completely transparent.

Transparent Self Portrait, Study #1

eric

This is a quick study I did for a larger piece. It is silk screen on mulitple layers of jewel cases. The dark parts are clear with the wall showing through and the light parts are opaque white. Truly a difficult thing to document. Click on the image to see multiple angles.

I guess, unconsciously, I was trying to land somewhere between the photographic portraits of Rodin and the imagery of Jamie Reid. And no, I’m not Jo Jo, the dog faced boy. But at one point, I had a rather large beard.
